I’m not quite sure how I ended up being the cake person, but for Carolyn’s 60th birthday I got the job of making the cake.
She had a wonderful weekend with a lunch on the day, followed by a surprise day out the next day where Kelley and I took her to paint some ceramics and then she visited her relatives in Auckland.
She likes to paint so I used that as the theme for her cake and came up with an artists palate. This is what I ended up with.
It was a very hot and humid day so I had a bit of trouble with the fondant sweating and falling apart but over all it worked out well and she loved her cake.
